Capsicum Chutney / Green Bell Pepper Chutney - Side Dish For Idly

         Capsicum are known by different names and available in different bright colors. I like the green one. I often use green one to make sambar, for topping the pizza and for subzis. I found this chutney in a Tv show so I thought of making this as a side dish for idly. This is very simple to make dish and great in taste and flavor. Capsicum, onion, tomato, red chillies and dals are roasted in oil, ground to a fine paste and finally tempering added to it. It goes well with idly or dosa.
